The longer this game goes on, the better it is for zhav. I’d like to start the pressure early, but going for Bargains can backfire if DeGrey shows up. Either way I’ll open with Garth, to keep zhav guessing.

@zhavier’s turn!

FYI, this is in Codex not pbf category.

Always check for the kill. Almost missed it.

Well, I couldn’t have asked for a better draw against that. Who would have thought the tower would be helpful? Would have been hard to suicide Degrey otherwise.

GG WP! By my count you’re actually 1 short of lethal? But it definitely doesn’t matter. Edit: I guess you just didn’t pay the $1 for maxbanding Rook.

I thought you could get the Arrive effect of a 2nd DeGrey whether or not the 1st one was alive.

There is a back and forth from me and EricF in the rules thread, that basically settled on it goes directly to discard, rather than ever being in play. The discussion also revolved around Manufactured Truth and what happens when you copy your own legendary. The answer was you discard to unit before it becomes a legendary, I think. It was honestly a bit confusing.

Oh, yea, Rook max was the extra point, math fail!
